Vintage Air Featured On Award-Winning Hot Rods At The Grand National Roadster Show

Posted by Logan Carter on Feb 24th 2022

  The Grand National Roadster Show is the longest-running indoor car show in the world, with 2022 being the 72nd year celebrating all things hot rod. Originally held in Oakland, Calif., the event has since migrated south to the Pomona Fairplex in Southern California. A professional team of judges rates the many vehicles at the show using a points system based on detail, condition, quality, safety and originality. Known as “The Grand Daddy of Them All,” GNRS is well-respected in the industry, and widely attended by people from all over the world. This year, Vintage Air-equipped builds took four of the 18 categories. [caption id="attachment_3354" align="aligncenter" width="1024"] Dan Duffy’s 1961 “Dirty Martini” Chevrolet Impala on display.
